It’s that time of year again, Merry, Happy, Blessed Whatever

Most of you know that we’ve been doing this for a few years now.  Partly it’s because we’re cheap broke, and partly it’s because we send this link to nearly 200 people who we’d legitimately want to send a real card to.  Also, I’m not big on the card produced by Shutterfly and never seen by the sender thing, and this method actually has a Snowflake’s chance in Cambridge of generating a conversation*.  So we do it this way.

Geoff and I also both detest the family letters with the omniscient narrator thing.  Somebody had to write the letter, yet you all get referred to by some all seeing eye who is extolling your virtues, talking about all the awards and science fairs the kids won, and showing off photos of your perfect vacations?  I don’t think so.  Everybody is tired of seeing only the highlight reel of other people’s lives in a brag letter written by an “anonymous” 3rd party designed to make the recipient feel like crap.  Merry Christmas, indeed.

So this year, inspired by Sam Sykes, Geoff and I are addressing a serious topic.  The #WarOnChristmas.  You have been warned.

Many of you are probably wondering why we’ve chosen to get “political” in our Holiday missive.  Have we lost our minds?  (Answer: Yes, a long time ago.  Haven’t you been paying attention?)

However, Sam asked and we’ve answered.

A Tale of the War on Christmas

–written by Geoff after too much caffeine, not enough sleep, and just the right amount of Twitter

Truthfully, here’s what we think about the #WarOnChristmas:

Ho Ho Ho Now I have a Machine Gun

Happy, Merry, Blessed Everything.  We’ll catch you next time.
